Mad( FLT) Scientist: the A380 is like a bull in a China shop however one slices it...JFK actually couldn't accept the A380 or 747-8 without several FAA waivers

Actually, I usually think of that one when sat in the cabin and we stop short of the gate, and half the pax immediately get up to grab their carry-on etc.

I wonder how many were stood in the aisle when that collision happened ...

I bet they will not do so again. A lesson learned perhaps.
